Shiba Inu has not been doing very well recently in the market, but that has not stopped the meme coin from being a favorite in the market. Investors had poured into the coin following its rallying to a new all-time high in October and have since maintained support for it. SHIB had lost its footing at this high price, dragging it out of the crypto top 10. However, the meme coin remains one of the most popular crypto coins in the market.
The watch-list on CoinMarketCap is a feature that allows investors to choose the assets they want to keep an eye on as the market evolves. The top watch-listed assets on this list usually do not fluctuate much. But Shiba Inu has shaken up things recently. SHIB not only made it into the top 10 but has beaten out some of its top rivals on the list.
Shiba Inu (SHIB) Takes 3rd Place
As Shiba Inu got kicked out of the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap, presently occupying 11th place, it has set up shop as a top contender in another top 10 list. For the top 10 most watch-listed coins on CoinMarketCap, SHIB made 3rd place on the list. It came behind Bitcoin and Ethereum which occupied 1st and 2nd positions respectively.

SHIB Ruling On Social Media
Shiba Inu has now surpassed Ethereum on total Twitter followers. The total number of followers on the official Twitter account of SHIB hit 1.8 million on Sunday, surpassing Ethereum which sat at 1.7 million at that time. SHIB is an ERC-20 token that is built on the Ethereum blockchain and has been one of the most successful tokens on the blockchain thus far.
The meme coin has continued its social media domination after the token was said to be the most talked-about cryptocurrency on social media in October following its rally to a new all-time high. This is a testament to how fast the community is growing.

Despite this though, the price has not positively reacted to all of the support. After dropping from its ATH at the end of October, there is no sign of improvement in the altcoin. The digital asset had dropped close to $0.00004 on Thursday but had since recovered back up. However, the meme coin has stagnated around $0.00005 in the days following that.
